Story:
This EK9 is one of two EK9’s ever imported to switzerland. The other one (as far as i know) was only imported for racing-use and converted to LHD and all the cool stuff was removed. At least i know for sure my EK9 is the one and only street legal EK9 here in switzerland, and that even with some heavy mods! It took me almost three years from the idea until i was able to put some street legal number plates on it. The fact i only wanted to import a car to see how it works (because almost nobody had done it before then) and it ended up in a  huge project makes this car so special for me. It took me a lot of money, time and work to get it imported, modified and legalized. And i’ve done all by myself, without any knowledge, so this is truly a rare gem 🙂
In EK9 circles i get some good reputation because it’s one really clean and mint EK9. I’ll try to keep it as it is and i’ll give it probably a little bit more of that “JDM” treatment just to keep the project alive. 😀

    • Hi Mohammad, actually i’m sorry. i don’t have any more for sale. best way to find one of These used is to check yahoo auctions in Japan or buy a new one from a Honda Workshop in Japan. Hope this helps.
